This card has the most frightening art in the whole game.

Suddenly my Kobold and ornithopter deck seems more feasible.

Necropotence, meet your little cousin. Death's Shadow, meet your mate.

so much fun to play, even in a mono black with tendrils of corruption
was able to do this at the end of someones turn, revealing a demigod and a damnation. fun

@Arglypuff: No, read the card.

The flavor text subtly hints at what you're supposed to be doing here: set up some way to become undead and use this card. Possible candidates for infinity draw are:
- Phyrexian Unlife (Only sources of damage gain infect)
- Lich (you only need to sacrifice permanents when you take damage)
- Platinum Angel/Platinum Emperion (derp)
- Soul Echo (little risky though)
- Angel's Grace (VERY risky, you'll need to win before Angel's Grace wears off. Although you DID just draw your entire deck...)

You can additionally use Tainted Sigil, Eternity Vessel, Sorin Markov, Tree of Redemption, Arbiter of Knollridge, Magister Sphinx, and/or Children of Korlis to restore your life total in case your lifeline goes kaput. Don't forget t... (see all)

I just read an article about using this card in a red-black aggro list. Note that this is instant speed, so you can resolve it at EoT, then do awesome stuff with fistful of cheap burn and critters, not the least of which are Death's Shadow and Goblin Bushwhacker. I want to add Devastating Summons to that list and run it. Best thing is, the whole deck ran me only $12, and only a few more if I want to add the most expensive card - Goblin Guide.

This is a great draw spell if you have a lot of 0-drops in your deck.

5/5. One of my favorite cards. Sad it's leaving. provides some crazy combos. Who doesn't love suicide decks with Death's Shadow's + Goblin Bushwhacker?

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
